For some, the Zombie fascination may have started in the mid 80’s with White Zombie’s tough and addictively sinful beats in songs like “Thunder Kiss ‘65’.” Others may have come on board later as eerily stunning dance beat remixes like “Never Gonna Stop” emerged. Now on the explosive cusp of garnering new fans yet again with the release of his latest movie, “The Lords of Salem” and his fifth solo album, “Venomous Rat Regeneration Vendor,” 7 time Grammy award nominee, Rob Zombie, is expected to hit the Sturgis bike fest at The Chip™ like the resultant force of World War II bomb bay doors opening.
